My daughter and I joined three other couples in late July for the Chianti Classico wine time tour. We chose the 9-3 tour and truly had a great experience. I was not sure about the 45 minute "class" that started the tour but it was interesting and fun and educational all at the same time. Then we hopped into a... More

My husband, good friends, and I recently visited Siena, Italy. While there we went to The Tuscan Wine School. It was so informative as well as fun. I am certainly not a wine connoisseur, I just know what I like and don't like. One of our friends is very familiar with many wines, and he enjoyed and learned a great... More

We ducked into the Tuscan Wine School on a rainy Florence afternoon. We had a reservation and we were a little early, but they kindly let us come inside and dry off. We were the only people there and the "private" experience was great, but I'm sure, given the set-up, that it would have been equally educational if the room... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to be the only two people booked in for the Italian morning session, which looked at wines over the entirety of Italy with a generous tasting of six. We decided to do this class as we also planned to take a Tuscan class in Siena and wanted to understand the differences in Italian... More

I stayed at a B&B a few blocks away from the Tuscan Wine School. It was easy to get there. Our driver was great! We stopped at the piazzale Michelangelo on the way to the winery and on the way back at sunset. I did the afternoon wine tour. It is well worth the money. The people are friendly, informative,...

My wife and I had a wonderful experience at the Tuscan wine school. By chance we were the only two people who booked on that day so we were treated to a very personal tasting. The wines were delicious and the instructor gave us a great and detailed explanation of Italian wines and their histories. Would highly recommend this to... More

My wife and I went to the 2 hour class one afternoon and had a great time. The instructor (likely the only Finnish Italian Sommelier you'll meet in Florence) was very friendly and helpful. She put the 4 of us in the class at ease, and led a great class. you mainly learn about various aspects of tuscan wines (and... More

After only a 10 minute walk from our rental apartment in the heart of Florence, we arrived at the Tuscan wine school. Immediately, our day of adventure began with learning about the history of the Chianti wine region, how to properly smell and taste a wine, and introductions to the other people in our group. After the 30 minute class,... More

This trip exceeded all expectations. The start of the six hours was at the wine school where the lesson in tasting was accompanied by our first glass of chianti classico. Then onto the minibus with a real fun driver. The journey showed the beauty of Tuscany before we arrived at the first vineyard. The guide was knowledgeable and the visit... More

We had a fabulous time on our tour! My husband and I traveled Europe for a month on our honeymoon and this was by far one of the highlights. The brief intro class at the wine school was informative and the instructor was very knowledgeable and friendly. Then Rebecca drove us to the wineries. She was so much fun and... More
